United States Water and Power


About Us

United States Water and Power is a small organization with a big idea. The idea is that water and power technologies, policies and practices should be environmentally sustainable by definition. U.S. Water and Power applies that same definition on a state-by-state basis including California Water and Power and on a county-by-county basis including Los Angeles County Water and Power. We welcome the participation and partnership of public agencies, private sector companies, community organizations and individuals who would like to co-create a sustainable water and power program in their county or state. Please contact us and we’ll build a better future today.
